What is an LEI Certificate?
LEI Certificate is a document with your company information based on a legal entity identifier (LEI) that is an international standard (ISO 17442) and is endorsed by G20 countries. LEI aims to standardize information regarding legal entities around the globe.
LEI Register has trustworthy information on all the LEI-s published in the world. Our database runs on a global LEI standard and has trustworthy/corroborated information that is kept up to date with a yearly information renewal**. Your LEI Certificate will be published electronically on all LEI Register websites around the world (31 websites). You will receive an electronic document on your email and you can also order a paper certificate document (A4 hard copy) if necessary. We will have it delivered to you in seven working days.
Why should I get an LEI Certificate?
It is very common that your bank, broker, etc may ask for your LEI or proof of it while opening an account or before making a financial transaction. This is where the LEI Certificate becomes handy. You can forward an electronic LEI Certificate via email to their onboarding team or upload it to your bank account or trader's cabinet. We also offer a physical paper certificate that you can order to your office.
LEIs are required by any legal entity that regularly incorporates financial transactions. This includes buying stocks, bonds and other securities. Some jurisdictions also require legal entities to obtain an LEI to make them easily identifiable. There are also a number of industries that are now required to apply for an LEI.

What is an LEI Tag?
LEI Tag is an informational data source that you can display on your website in order to indicate the legal entity behind the website. Website visitors can click on the LEI Tag, open it up, and see the basic information like the full legal entity name and address. By clicking the LEI Tag once more, a new tab will be opened with your company's LEI Certificate page on the LEI Register website that has all the information based on your LEI.
Why should I get an LEI Tag?
In some countries, you must display your company name on your company's website. Not necessarily on every single web page, but it must be easily accessible to your visitors in order to validate the legal entity behind the site. In other countries, it is not required, but it is a good practice to have it displayed in order to build trust for your website visitor. This increases the chance that people will interact with your website. The LEI Tag also indicates that you have an active LEI code, which makes your company more trustworthy.
Can I display this information myself or use some other trust mark?
Many companies who sell trust marks do not actually validate your information after the initial application. If you do not renew your LEI and Certificate annually, then your LEI Certificate and Tag will display “Inactive” status which means that your information is expired. If you do update, then we check your information, validate it with your local business register and the “Active” status will be shown.
Yes, you can display all this information yourself, but getting an LEI Tag on your website indicates that you have gone a step further and validated your information with a global standard like an LEI (ISO 17442) and your information is public and you have an LEI Certificate. With an LEI Tag, you will be directly linked to your LEI Certificate and you can display that to your customers to instill more trust.

How to implement the LEI Tag on your website?
Here is an Html script snippet that you would have to copy-paste to the <head> of your website.
Replace XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX with the LEI code of your company:
To get the dark blue version of the LEI Tag instead of the lighter white version, use the color=dark attribute:
After that, the clickable LEI Tag with valid information about your LEI and company will appear in the bottom-right corner of your website.
One easy solution would be to install for example the Insert Headers and Footers plugin to allow easy copy-pasting on script snippets to your website. Follow the instructions on how to install the plugin and copy-paste the LEI Tag snippet to the header box in the WordPress admin. You could also add it as custom code if you have developed custom plugins on your website.
Basically the same approach as mentioned for WordPress, but for Drupal, is to use the Header and Footer Scripts module:
